You Think Your Weather is Bad! by American Elephant

Tornado season is on its way

Sioux City, Iowa

Storm-chasers are nuts. But they make good fodder for action/adventure movies. If you’ve never seen Twister with Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton, give it a rent. It’s not high cinema, it’s just good, solid, storm-chasing fun!

A great example of how computer graphics can be used to make the action more believable, instead of over-the-top and unbelievable — Twister really sucks you into the action, and almost makes you feel as though you’re right there in the path of the tornado.

Naturally, to get the best effect, I recommend watching it on the biggest screen you can. The truly daring may want to try finding it at a drive-in. But any way you watch it, Twister is a classic, popcorn-crunching, edge-of-your-seat thriller.

And if you’re reading us from Tornado Alley, keep your heads down and stay safe this season.

Tornados are caused by global warming and George Bush, right?

Lol, of course! Weather of any kind is proof of global warming.

Wow! That’s scary. I hope everyone is okay.

I think that tornado trackers are crazy but they’re VERY brave.

The pictures are both beautiful and frightening because you realize the power involved. Many years ago, a cousin of mine was in the direct path. They were OK, but could not save even a toothbrush. They lost everything.
